Test Concerning Proportions

1. Twenty one out of 100 randomly selected women said they use seat belts, while 117 out of 180 men said the same. Test the claim that men are more safety conscious than women based one the use of seat belts at a 0.01 level of significance. Construct a 99% confidence interval to test the claim.

2. Labor statistics indicate that 88 out of 100 cashiers and servers are women. A random sample of cashiers and servers in a large city indicate that 124 of 150 cashiers and 200 of 250 servers are women. Is there a significant difference in the proportion of servers and proportion of cashiers who are women at 0.05 level of significance?

#### A binary bit stream over an m-psk system

Continuing Problem 8.4.9, in the mapping of the bit sequence b2b1b0 to the symbols si, we wish to determine the probability of error for each input bit bi. Let qi denote the p

#### Simulation to estimate the probability of symbol error

In Problem 8.4.5, we used simulation to estimate the probability of symbol error. For transmitting a binary bit stream over an M-PSK system, we set each M = 2N and each tran
